Searchers find bodies of 2 ice anglers in St. Marys River
(2008-01-23)
(wgvu) - MUNUSCONG, Mich. (AP) - Michigan State Police divers have
recovered the bodies of two ice anglers from the St. Marys River
between Lakes Huron and Superior.
On Tuesday, they found the bodies of 29-year-old Nicholas
Pangburn of Sault Ste. Marie and 20-year-old Kristina Peffers of
Pickford.
The Evening News of Sault Ste. Marie and the The Mining Journal
of Marqutte report they had been missing since last week.
Police say they went ice fishing and apparently lost their way
while snowmobiling back to land during a blizzard. The sled ran off
the ice and into the open waters of Munuscong Bay.
Divers searched nearly four days before finding the bodies under
water, about 135 yards from where the snowmobile went down.
